Motorola updates Android 2.1 timeline, no Devour upgrade is planned yet

Motorola posted an updated schedule listing the timelines of Android 2.1 upgrades for their smartphone lineup. Several additions have been made since we last saw the list including the new Backflip, CLIQ XT, and Devour.

The CLIQ XT is essentially the same device as the original CLIQ (minus the keyboard) so it is no surprise that it will be updated in Q2 2010. AT&T’s Backflip also features the same internals of the CLIQ, but it has several customizations added by the carrier that will delay its update to Q3.

Rounding out the trio of new devices is the Verizon Devour, which has no upgrade planned at this time and is under evaluation. The Devour has a different processor than the CLIQ and Backflip so this is the likely reason why it still has no timeline for an upgrade to  Android 2.1. Thankfully, the Devour at least shipped with Android 1.6 (vs 1.5 on other Moto phones) which should make the wait for 2.1 a little easier.
